Information for Publishers

This year's annual meeting of the Business History Conference will take place in Columbus, Ohio, 21-23 March 2013. We invite publishers to participate in our Book and Journal Exhibit; we particularly encourage non-U.S.-based publishers to take part.

The publishers' exhibit is a combined book and journal table-top display, housed in an area near the meeting rooms to encourage browsing. We would be happy to receive one display copy of each book or journal you wish to exhibit, along with order forms, subscription information, catalogues, brochures, and other handouts.

We expect approximately 250 people to attend, primarily economists and historians. Members of the BHC have interests ranging broadly across the fields of business and economic history. The BHC is international in membership: scholars from the UK, many European countries, Canada, Japan, and Latin America will attend, as well as academics from several other parts of the world. The theme for the 2013 meeting is “The Cultures and Institutions of Business.” The program has now been posted.

There is no fee for exhibiting books or journals at the BHC meeting, but we require exhibitors to donate the books and journals they send to the conference for our silent auction.

If you have questions about paid advertising or sponsorship possibilities, please contact BHC Secretary-Treasurer Roger Horowitz for additional information.

Please note that we cannot return books, journals, or any advertising materials to publishers. Therefore, do not send banners, book stands, or other valuable materials; we can accommodate small table-top cardboard stands, such as enlarged jacket images. Publishers may send discount flyers or order forms, but we do not permit selling at the conference.

To assist us in planning, we ask publishers to register, using the form provided. Please submit your registration form no later than March 8, 2013. If you have questions about the exhibit, please contact Pat Denault via email.

Because the conference venue has limited storage space, books and other materials for the exhibit must be timed to arrive between March 18 and 20, 2013. Materials should be sent via FedEx or UPS. with the shipping label addressed as follows:
